South Carolina's Parents Put In Charge
The "Put Parents in Charge" proposal uses a state income tax credit to create school choice. "Put Parents in Charge" will provide tax credits to parents who choose to home school, transfer to a different public school, or use a private school for their child's education. Those who do not have state tax liability due to low income are eligible to receive scholarships from Scholarship Granting Organizations (SGOs) that will be established by non-profit organizations. If a child chooses to attend another school, the district he leaves will retain all federal and local education monies. Ultimately, school districts will have more money to spend on fewer students, thus increasing per pupil spending.
